PLANT - COSMOS: BRIGHT LIGHTS
Cosmic cosmos sets the border aglow with serenely radiant, lavender, pink, magenta and white hues. Breathlessly pretty flower blooms early and lavishly, from late June to September. Uniform standard size plants (48"-60" tall), blooming 70 days after sowing. Easy to grow plants tolerate poor soil and hot, humid conditions.
PRO TIP: Drought tolerant. Water regularly while establishing, then only during dry, hot spells. Pinch the leader at about 12" to encourage branching and more flowers. Dead head flowers for longer season. Excellent cut flowers.
PRO TIP2: Harvest when buds are cracking, but haven't fully opened in order to prevent insects from pollinating; which will help stretch the vase life by a few days. Flower preservative is recommended.
